Cubs Fact:

When former Cubs pitcher Lee Smith retired in 1997, he held the Major League career saves record with 478.
Please don't feed the psychos.

Oh the possibilities in making a smart-ass remark about Smith...but you know what, he was pretty damn good and the Cubs traded him way too early and didn't get shit...Schiraldi and Nipper...I remember after they traded him I read a quote from Tommy LaSorda saying that they would have given up more than Schiraldi and Nipper....

Jim Frey sucked, and his reign of terror probably helped us have the sucky 90's that we did...
